The Azerbaijani Armed Forces have repeatedly attempted to carry out fortification works on the Armenian-Azerbaijani border in the border areas of the Republic of Armenia, however, all of these attempts have been promptly prevented by the relevant actions of the Armenian units, informs the Ministry of Defense of Armenia.
On June 3, Azerbaijani Armed Forces attempted to carry out certain earthworks with a tractor in the border area of the Republic of Armenia. After the warning shots of the Armenian units, the works came to a stop. A clear demand was presented to the Azerbaijani side to exclude the recurrence of such attempts, said the Ministry of Defense.
Nevertheless, the Azerbaijani Armed Forces continue to carry out engineering and fortification works in the areas where their military bases are located, without crossing the border of the Republic of Armenia. As the movement of these areas by the Azerbaijani military is visible in the Verin Shorzha region of Gegharkunik region, as well as from the villages of Kut, this raises the concern of the local population, which is reflected in the Ombudsman’s report.
